Slope stability analysis of a borax stockpile site
Karpuz, Celal (2009-01-01)
Stability investigations were conducted for a slope at the back of a borax stockpile site near the Bandirma Harbor in the northwestern Turkey. There was a slope failure at the site causing damage in the concrete sections of the harbour in front. Investigations started with deformation monitoring with an inclinometer. Failure mechanisms were determined with back analysis using method of slices and finite difference models. A combined failure mechanism involving a circular failure surface in the slope and a n...
Slope stability assessment of a re-activated landslide on the Artvin-Savsat junction of a provincial road in Meydancik, Turkey
Topsakal, Ebru; Topal, Tamer (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-03-01)
The purpose of this study is to determine the most suitable remediation techniques for an active landslide area in Turkey, using a geological engineering assessment of a re-activated landslide that occurred during the construction of the Artvin-Savsat Junction on the Meydancik Provincial Road, at Km: 12 + 200. For this, the geotechnical parameters of the mobilized geological material-which is colluvium along the sliding surface-were determined by back analyses of the landslide at three geological sections. ...
Slope stability assessment of various road cuts with effects of weathering at North West Black Sea Region (Turkey)
Ersöz, Timur; Topal, Tamer; Department of Geological Engineering (2017)
Rocks containing pore spaces, fractures, joints, bedding planes and faults are prone to weathering due to effects of temperature differences, wetting-drying, chemistry of solutions absorbed, and other physical and chemical agents. Especially cut slopes are very sensitive to weathering activities because of disturbed rock mass and topographical condition by excavation. During and right after an excavation process of a cut slope, weathering and erosion may act on this newly exposed rock material. These acting...
Slope stability risk assessment on structures of a nearby residential area around a surface lignite mine in Bursa-Turkey
Karpuz, Celal (2012-05-28)
Slope failures may cause production interruption and equipment loss in addition to the potential danger for personnel. A potential instability in parts of the slopes near residential areas may result in damage on the surface utility structures as well as legal issues. In Orhaneli Surface Lignite Mine, Altintas village is located close to the existing southwest slope of Panel SA-6 in Sagirlar Sector. South-east slope which is also near Altintas village had some slope stability problems. Safe and uninterrupte...
